Corona Virus/Fur Ball Update

Fayette Regional Humane Society Statement Regarding COVID – 19


The Fayette Regional Humane Society (FRHS) is committed to the health of our community, our employees, and the animals in our care. As the only animal welfare organization in Fayette and Ross Counties investigating animal cruelty, we cannot cease operations. The animals need us, and there are too many lives depending on us. We will continue to investigate animal cruelty and will continue to focus on animal adoptions to make room for more animals in need. At this time, our spay/neuter and trap, neuter, return programs will continue.

Please note: there is no current evidence that pets can contract or transmit the virus. We ask that you also include care for your pets in your emergency preparedness plan.

The FRHS maintains a high-level cleanliness and sanitation, and are increasing our disinfection protocol, as well as encouraging all guests to wash their hands before entering at the washing station provided. We ask that any ill staff, visitors and volunteers please remain home. At the recommendation of the Ohio Department of Health and Governor DeWine, we will be postponing the Fur Ball until September 19th, 2020.

To maintain social distancing in our facility, we ask you to please only visit us to adopt or if you are participating in one of our programs. Otherwise, please contact us by phone at: 740.335.8126.

We will continue to follow this ever-changing situation and will reassess our policies as needed.
